Good and Thready

Goldilocks syndrome. You’ve got it. As least when it comes to your eyebrows.

You want those arches just right, but it seems like you’re always tweezing or waxing way too much or not nearly enough.

Thank goodness the ultra-precise threading technique has finally made it to Honolulu, at the Waxing Company. Long used in India and the Middle East, the hair-removal method uses a cotton thread that's twisted and rolled along the skin's surface, catching lines of hair along the way and pulling them out from the follicle.

It’s way less painful than tweezing hairs out individually and it's much faster and cleaner than waxing since it leaves out all the sticky hot waxes and messy creams. Plus, threading is easy on sensitive and acne prone skin since it doesn't strip off the top layer of skin.

The technicians make sure to snag all unwanted strays, leaving you with perfectly shaped arches and no worries about walking out of the salon looking too, um, threadbare. You can even go for the full facial option, which includes the upper and lower lip, forehead and cheeks.

Which means you can leave those bushy brows behind you.
And put your best face forward.
